ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- John Beilein looked at his star guard, saw what was going on and, for a brief minute early in the first half Thursday night, pulled him from the game.
Don't settle for 3-pointers, the coach said. Tim Hardaway Jr. has immense talent and can beat most of the players he faces to the rim. Plus, in Beilein's offense, a backdoor cut is a friendly one, so why not use it?
This had been a major issue for the sophomore last season.
